I recently found myself wanting a pager which respected ^L formfeed page throw.

looks like when people wrote pagers, they were seeking to reject the
tyranny of the paper formalism. None of the current set recognize it
as a marker worthy of pause.

The thing is, that now we are not bound by formalisms of page size, it
turns out the semantic intent of a page throw might be .. useful.
